The Separation (2011)

I was much impressed with the simplicity and honesty of this little film.

A Separation (Persian: جدایی نادر از سیمین‎‎ Jodaí-e Nadér az Simín, “The Separation of Nader and Simin”) is a 2011 Iranian drama film written and directed by Asghar Farhadi, starring Leila Hatami, Peyman Moaadi, Shahab Hosseini,Sareh Bayat, and Sarina Farhadi. It focuses on an Iranian middle-class couple who separate, and the conflicts that arise when the husband hires a lower-class care giver for his elderly father, who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease.

A Separation won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2012, becoming the first Iranian film to win the award.
